Is There Anything Better......

 ............than 'tea' and good conversation.....or in my case coffee . :) And you won't mind will you if i continue to work on my current obsession.....?  What a week! The things i could tell you!!!  And on top of all that an EarthQuake!!  that thankfully we didn't even feel...   We had our own sort of earthquake.... or hubby did at least....

I get a phone call what was it? Wednesday...... 'Honey i've been rear ended..........' Needless to say the car that hit him got the worst end of the deal... i think it was totaled.  Ours is about $3000 in damage.......... The collision actually knocked the hat off of my hubby's head and nothing does that...not rain not sleet nor snow or high winds!!  At first hubby thought he was okay then about midnight that night the pain in his neck really kicked in and we ended up at the hospital Thurs. morning....thankfully nothing serious just strained muscles . He took the rest of the week off work and felt much better going to work this morning..... I think he's more upset about his poor baby truck being hurt and that he will have to drive a rental car for about a week..........So all's good......

Remember this???  Well this image was accepted at to be put on tshirts for one week. I thought you might like to go check it out and just see how it looks on a tshirt. Its pretty cool i think........Love to know what you think!

And if we were sitting around drinking coffee....or tea or ........ i would HAVE to tell you about my friend Eileen's GiveAway....You know because i'm nice like that.... :)  .......She is having a relaunch party that includes some terrific GiveAways and i wouldn't want you to miss out (a piece of my artwork is listed!)....... So if you have a minute....after we finish our 'Tea' ofcourse pop over there and show her some love.........

And........since we are spreading around the love stop by and say hi to Kathy who also happens to be launching a new blog AND having a GiveAway......... See !! Look at all the gossip i have to share this morning! :) The kind of gossip that might help you WIN something!! I hope your having a wonderful T Tuesday! I have company coming next week so you KNOW what i will be doing this week! ......drumroll please......CLEANING........... uughh.....Linking with Elizabeth !!  Big Hugs! deb

Glad your hubby is okay!

Glad to hear Hubby is alright. Our Son had an accident years ago and he went to the hospital after the crash. He got whiplash and still suffers from it, but all he was concerned about was his baby, the F-150 truck of his.

I am glad to read your hubby is feeling better-that is always such a "pain" when that happens.
Loved the tea-thanks-and thank you for the link-that was sweet of you-I am off to check out Eileen's too
I must get back to my cleaning too-but I am playing with my needle felting instead-more fun on a hot day
hugs Kathy

I hate to hear about that accident. And I have a lot of friends out there in CA and so far none had any damage from the quake...glad of that. Yay for the T-shirt art too.

Go clean now and enjoy your company next week!
xx, Carol

Krisha said...

Well, congrats on your art being chosen to be placed on a T-shirt! I adore that piece anyway.

Glad to hear DH is really ok now. Those neck injuries can really become serious. You can always buy truck parts!

I'll have to check out the other blogs you mentioned.

Have a great week

CraftyViolet said...

Sorry to hear about the crash and glad he wasn't hurt too badly. I'll be checking out the other blogs for sure - thanks!

Incipient Wings said...

I heard about the earthquake...good thing you didn't feel it or have damage from it!
Sorry about the accident...I've had that nasty pain and it's just so uncomfortable:(
Happy to hear he's all better now.
I do love that's just beautiful!!

Izzybeads by Laney said...

Glad your hubby is ok although I did chuckle at the thought of nothing shifting his hat off his head but a rear end shunt!

Earthquake...yikes! We don't tend to get them here in the UK occasionally we get a tremor but its usually in the North of England so not felt here in the lonely West :)

ps black tea...just incase you need to know ;)

Hello and Happy T Day! So glad your husband is ok, that looked pretty bad for the other car. I was sore and stiff for days after a accident years ago. Glad he got to rest and feel better.
You are so funny spreading the gossip around here over our beverages. Thank you for sharing the links and giving me a chuckle.
YAY for your art being picked, that's so cool. Great art too!
Enjoy the yucky job of cleaning, not my favorite either.
Have a great week.

Glad your husband is OK ... that is never fun (I got a similar call last year and it knocks the breath out of you for a second!)
No wonder your artwork was chosen for the looks fabulous!
Thanks for sharing so much and
Happy T Day to ya

Super Stamp Girl said...

Hi Deb, oh wow, that looks like quite the accident really. Glad to hear that everyone involved is mostly okay and that hopefully your husband will feel better soon. Happy T-day.

Dianne said...

wow. glad hubby is ok, & the truck will mend--he looks very forlorn in that photo! Love your design--so cool to have it printed on Tee shirts! now to check out the give-aways...happy T day!

The Weaver of Grass said...

Oh yes - company coming so plenty of cleaning to be done - same here.

Sorry about the accident but it seems as though hubby has managed to escape without too much damage.

Divers and Sundry said...

Poor little red truck! But I'm glad your hubby seems ok. :)

Congrats on the t-shirt project.

Denise Price said...

Yikes, I hope you are done with earthquakes, both real and figurative, for awhile now. Have a Happy T Day!

PS that t-shirt design is magical!!!

Halle said...

Bummer about the truck but so glad he wasn't seriously injured.

Robyn said...

Ouch! All around. Glad everyone is okay.
Beautiful mug.

TwinkleToes2day said...

So glad your hubs is doing ok and that the eathquake wasn't near.
Thank you for your comment on my post - the Manatea, made from silicon, splits in the middle and the tea leaves go in the tail end. Hot water is poured on and the tea infuses through little holes around the body. I will try to remember to take some photo's for you, the next time I use it :D

Bridget Larsen said...

Whiplash is like soft tissue injuries ann takes awhile to heal and can come back in the future to haunt your hubby. get him to get it treated regularly like acupuncture or physiotherapy.

Yeah he would be more worried about that beautiful car than his neck, but boy that car behind really copped it, well his fault for 1 travelling too fast and 2 for not paying attention to cars in front.

Glad your hubby is okay!
Your design looks fantastic on the t-shirt!!
Happy T-Day! :)

Ariel said...

So sorry to hear about your hubby's truck but glad to know that he is doing okay. That art work is lovely, I especially love that beautiful feather. It is so awesome. Thank you for sharing the links of all these places. Hope to go and have a look at them.
Wishing you a wonderful week

Eileen The Artful Crafter said...

Sorry about the accident but glad that hubby is okay.

You already know how I love the design and the tee shirt. I hope you'll do more of those stacked box designs,

Thank you for the shout about our relaunch and contest. it ends Saturday midnight. Then we'll see who wins your lovely donated art and the Amazon gift certificates.

You'd think a $50 certificate would entice a lot of people,, but it hasn't. So the few entrants have pretty good chances of winning something! What fun!

Neesie said...

Phew... so happy to hear that only your hubbies hat came off! It's so shocking when you get rear ended. It happened to my hubby once and he suffered whiplash too.
Love the artwork and I've nipped in to see the t-shirts. Your's looks fantastic. The design and colours are great.
I also nipped in (by mistake) to see your other blog... WOW what a journey you've been on. It's so inspiring. Well done ;D
Good luck with the t-shirts and thanks for all the gossip!
Have a great week xxoo
